Friday, 11/20/09 Early Dismissal

Winning Far West Regional ChampsWhat a wild ride we’re on with RCS Football! As most of you have probably heard by now, our incredible football team beat out Dundee to become the Far West Regional Champions on Friday night in Rochester. GO CARDINALS!

This means they advance to play Groton on Friday night, 11/20/09, in Rochester again at 5:00. That’s our last step on this journey to the State Championships which will be held on Saturday, November 28 in Syracuse.

What are our plans for this Friday regarding school and a possible early dismissal?

We learned last Friday that a 1:00 dismissal didn’t seem to work for most families with over 100 students dismissed before 1:00. That also didn’t allow for any of our bus drivers (usually ardent fans of our team!) to attend with everyone else. In addition, we had lunches to get in before 1:00 and the whole thing will just work better if we call it a 1/2 day, dismissing students at 11:30. This also affords us the opportunity to have an ENORMOUS, ENERGETIC AND ENTHUSIASTIC send off in which a cavalcade of fans can follow the buses to Rochester!

Staff and faculty will be expected to stay and work their usual work day–our teachers often ask for more time to work together on curriculum planning or on their integration of technology or on their websites–unless they choose to go to the game too.

A parent broadcast message will be going out soon, the news is updated on our Randolph Facebook page (with 300 members already!) and we’ll send notes home in our PK-6 backpacks this week. As always, please contact me with any questions.

I think we have another State Championship on the way!!!
